The cops chewed his butt about it, but it kept him safe until the cops took everybody into custody. No officer involved accidental shootings that day.
    So we have a sucessful CCW Badge use?!?

    I see that they do "custom" orders. I wonder how much it would cost to get one that reads "Dork" or "Mall Ninja".

    Why not just wear a frigg'n cape?

    Sheepdog might be a better option.

    I would hope that no self respecting "sheepdog" type would wear this tacky crap.

    The badge will get you in trouble in Nebraska

    The product was designed by a police officer specifically for use by plainclothes/off-duty police for ID after a shooting in an effort to avoid 'blue-on-blue' events and the tragedy that follows. It was later expanded to include the security and CCW labels as you can see.

    The idea with the CCW model is to provide 1) a high visibility indicator (I believe he has some pictures comparing it with regular clothing and just a badge at night) that 2) gives you an extra second or two for the police arriving to sort you out. The idea is that the banner will make for some additional hesitation that could, under the circumstances, keep you from getting shot.

    I would expect that you would still get proned out or restrained in some manner, but the main point is to keep them from immediately shooting you, especially if they come running up before you have secured your weapon after a shooting incident.

    Obviously, if the local agencies get some kind of heads-up or briefing about it, it will work better.

    Phillip Gain appears to have the best pro/con evaluation of the main points about this. I hope this background helps a bit with understanding about the product.

    I don't care as much about making you more "tactical" as I do about making you better able to be the one still standing after the fight is over.

    Still not enough to convince me to run out and buy one right now. If I don't have confidence in a LE Agency not shooting me, then I simply don't have any confidence. I won't mention any particular department(s), however there are several where I have serious doubts that after a shooting they would not shoot me by mistake. Heck, I'll bed these agencies would probably even manage to shoot one of their own "by mistake". No piece of equipment other than body armor will prevent me from getting shot.
